testing out new brushes (◡‿◡✿)
we take for granted all the times our nose isn’t stuffy
Every time this post comes around, I have to explain this.
Watch Dennou Coil, the most underrated anime pretty much ever.
- Yes, this is the standard of animation throughout the series.
- AND THIS IS A FILLER EPISODE.
- It’s basically about kids with what’s essentially Google Glass: The Game. The whole world is affected by this game. Traffic lights, school, anything.
- It’s good in the beginning and gets really, really good by the end.
- Shows the vulnerabilities of children.
- Well-written children in general. They fall under some tropes but they don’t suffer from the usual fallacies of writing children into series.
- And yeah, the filler episodes are really good. The whole series is worth watching.
Reblogging as a reminder to myself
I can’t honestly be the only one who gets really disappointed if their calendar picture for the month of their birthday is rubbish, right?
i have been waiting for this post my whole life
I can’t believe I’m wasting my time to replay this game
Makoto and Rin with a Black Cat
I don’t have a full translation but IT’S STILL HELLA CUTE
Rin: Yo Makoto, I was waiting.
Makoto: Rin! Since you called me to come over to Samezuka right away, I was surprised! Did something happen?
Rin: Makoto, I have something to ask of you.
Makoto: What is it?
Rin: Recently, Nagisa was saying this, but… Is it true that you’re familiar with taking care of cats?
Makoto: Eh?? Uh.. cats?
Rin: Yes, cats.
Makoto: *laughs* Oh~ You called me with such a scary voice, I thought something bad happened so I rushed over here!
Rin: This is a big problem!! Look at this arm!
Makoto: woah— So many scratch marks!! Rin… don’t tell me this is from a cat…?
Rin: yeah… thanks to this, it burns when I go in the pool or bath or whatever!
Makoto: What kind of cat did this? A small one?
Rin: It has a small body, but it has very sharp claws. Every time I try to pet it, it attacks me. This is the first time I’ve gotten beat up so bad…
Makoto: What kind of vicious cat is this? In fact, if it’s so vicious, why don’t you just stay away from it?!
Rin: Idiot, it can’t end like this! There’s no way I’m losing to a cat! Since that’s the case, you’re helping me out!!
Makoto: W-wait, Rin, don’t pull!! Even if it is a cat, it’s still too vicious for me! I don’t want to get scratched!
Rin: Oh shut up, stop complaining!!
Makoto: I DON’T WANNA, RIN YOU GO BY YOURSELFff
Rin: SHUT UP!!
Makoto: Rin… isn’t this like a back yard? Isn’t it bad if a visitor like me enters here?
Rin: It’s fine, the only people that go through here are the guys from the swim club anyway. If we get caught I’ll just make up something.
Makoto: “Make up something”… We’re going to get in trouble!
Rin: shut up.. just come over here. This way.
Makoto: H-hey, it’s dark so walk more slowly…
Rin: psst, hey Makoto! Over there.
Makoto: eh, here?
Rin: look! that black cat
Makoto: what.. Oh! That! It’s coming over here… *cat meows* woah, it’s coming over to ME! I don’t want to get scratched!! Rin!! Go in front of me!
Rin: W-wait, don’t push me!
Makoto: but it attacks people right??
Rin: No, you go in front!!
Makoto: No, don’t push me!!! *cat meows*
Makoto and Rin: Eh…?
Makoto: w-what? I’m not getting scratched… ahh It’s rubbing against my leg… and it doesn’t make a fuss when I pet it.. haha! How cute! Just like Rin said, it’s still a kitten.
Rin: H-hey Makoto…
Makoto: Hehe, that tickles~ *laughs*
Rin: *baffled* H-hey, pass it over here!
Rin: *talking to the cat* Here. C’mere and I’ll pet you. *cat scratches him* OUCH!! THIS LIL—
Makoto: WOAH Rin are you okay???
Rin: Shit, why does it always scratch ME?
Makoto: Rin… You gotta approach it less scarily. I think you should approach it with a smile! Right?
*shining sound effect indicating Makoto’s smile is fucking angelic*
Rin: *baffled, again* O-oh. S-smile! *shining sound effect* …LIKE I COULD DO THAT!! I’M NOT YOU, I CAN’T JUST EASILY LAUGH!
Makoto: Rude! You used to laugh when you were a kid all the time!
Rin: Don’t bring up the old days!!
Makoto: Just try and remember back then, and try to laugh gently!!!! Rin… Rin.. RInnnn… RIN!!
Rin: GAHHH alright i’ll do it… it’s alright if I do it right…
Makoto: Do your best!
Rin: *coughs* d-d-don’t be scared. C’mon. Come over here. *cat hisses, scratches Rin* OW SEE MAKOTO, IT STILL SCRATCHES ME
Makoto: Well don’t blame it on me!! *cat meows* Haha, again with the rubbing… Alright alright, leaves me no choice… *pets the cat*
Rin: Makoto… You’re not hiding any catnip are you?!?
Makoto: Of course not…
Rin: I didn’t want to use this method, but it leaves me no choice… AHA! No animal will refuse food!
Makoto: Canned cat food! Rin, you had such a thing??
Rin: I was correct for preparing this!!!
Makoto: For a cat, it’s like a drug! 100% tuna, skipjack tuna flavor! This’ll probably work!!
Rin: *opens cat food* Here. Now eat. H-hey, don’t look over here. The. Food. Is. Right. In. Front. Of. You. What, you’re not going to eat it?!
Makoto: Hmm… I guess it still a little vigilant?
Rin: *sighs* I guess this way is impossible too… Hey Makoto, isn’t there another way?
Makoto: Whatt? Hm… Ah that’s right! Green foxtails!!
Rin: That’s really plain.
Makoto: Oh, shut up! Here, just pull out the foxtails growing over there and just hover and shake it above the cat… *talking to the cat* here, over here! Oh, now to the left. See? It happily jumps and plays along. While I do this, I accidentally get into it…
Rin: Wow, it really jumps when you use that…
Makoto: You wanna give it a go? Here, a foxtail.
Rin: S-so, all I have to do it hover and shake it like you were doing?
Makoto: Yeah, only maybe a little slower.
Rin: Alright. *talking to the cat* Here, look closely. *starts playing with the cat*
Makoto: Haha, amazing, Rin!! You’re able to play with it!
Rin: Haha, it caused so much trouble!! I feel relieved now! C’mon! Haha, once you get to know it, it’s a really cute guy! This guy… Next time I want to show him…
Makoto: Huh? Who’s “him”?
Rin: Eh? Oh, this abandoned cat I picked up once. I’m taking care of it in an old abandoned school house.
Makoto: Oh… Haha, even if you do say otherwise, you’re a nice person.
Rin: WH— THAT WAS Just.. a rainy day and I was just walking around… It was no helping it… Once I found it , I mean, you can’t just leave it there, so…!!!
Makoto: Hey Rin, next time, introduce me to it! I want to see what kind of cat Rin picked up.
Rin: … It can’t be helped then… Next time, alright? As a thank you for today, I’ll introduce you to it next time.
Makoto: Ok, thanks! I’m looking forward to it!
the safest route!!!
